City of OKC Selects Convention Center and Hotel Site
The City of Oklahoma City has agreed upon and selected the new MAPS 3 Convention Center and Hotel site.
 
The new location sits south of the Chesapeake Energy Arena, at Southwest 4th Street and Southwest 7th Street in-between Shields and Robinson. The site will end at Southwest 7th Street and will serve as the south end of the center and start of the future Core to Shore park.

Numerous factors went into choosing the new site, with a heavy amount of consideration for future surrounding development. This site will best serve the convention center and help to stimulate development in the adjacent blocks. With development already moving west of downtown, the convention center will help spur growth to the south.
 
The site was strategically selected because of its proximity to the MAPS 3 downtown public park, Bricktown, the Myriad Gardens, Chesapeake Arena and other downtown attractions. It is a short walk to the planned MAPS 3 streetcar project route and is near the new Oklahoma City Boulevard.
 
The city is making strides to acquire property and hopes to finish acquisition in the next nine months. The design process will begin on the $287 million center while the property is acquired and the substation relocated.
